BMW will not give up its businesses in Britain because of Brexit

The German company BMW has denied the information about the withdrawal of production from the UK due to the uncertain situation around Brexit.
This is reported by Reuters with reference to the company's representative Ian Robertson.

"No, we are not. We are committed to our enterprises in the United Kingdom, our staff, "said a company representative in the UK.

Earlier, the Financial Times published an article that talked about the possible closure of factories of the German concern in Britain, which produces cars Mini and Rolls-Royce. This is due to the situation around the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, which could disrupt supplies.

Robertson noted that the comments in the newspaper article were taken out of context and related to a supply chain disruption that would result in delays in production at British plants.

The withdrawal of Britain from the European Union was announced after the general referendum in 2016. After this, the country's parliament passed a bill on the withdrawal of the UK from the EU. In March, London agreed with the EU on the transition period after Brexit from 30 March 2019 to 31 December 2021.
